The Boss: Centric's Gina Emmanuel

"It’s as if Gina Emmanuel was born to do two things: be an architect and travel the world. She’s been drawing since she could hold a pencil and now is a top principal at Centric Architecture, one of Nashville’s oldest architecture firms, specializing in projects that give fresh life to churches, warehouses and old buildings. One of her current projects has work and family ties: She’s helping her father overhaul a 10-acre site in West Nashville into a combined 335 condos, townhomes and single-family homes. Her parents are the reason she’s in Nashville, after the family escaped apartheid in South Africa when she was 5 years old. She returns often to South Africa, which is why she can’t help but find zoos to be a little bit … boring."
